Why I Advocate for Paid Family Leave

As a new mom and freelance journalist and editor, I had to cobble together my maternity leave with California’s paid family leave program and by working on projects during my pregnancy. The United States currently has no federal paid family leave. I recently wrote a piece for The Atlantic’s CityLab about corporations who are offering generous paid family leave (up to 26 weeks fully paid), on-site childcare, and additional parental support.
